Saturday links — Gameday is here

Good morning from Salt Lake City, where it’s indeed sunny and appearing on its way to the 85-degree day that has been predicted.

It’s also a day that could go a long way toward defining where UW’s season is headed. Okay, so maybe we say that to some extent every week in this space. In college football, though, with its 12-game season, that’s often how it is.

In UW’s case, a win here today could really set up the Huskies well with a bye, and then Colorado coming in on Oct. 15 before a trip to Stanford on Oct. 22. A 5-1 record heading into that one could set up that game as the biggest in the regular season the Huskies have played in about a decade. That’s getting ahead of things, obviously — lots of work to do here today. But also lots to be potentially gained, just adding to the intrigue of this day.
